A level Further Maths

Why study Cambridge A level Further Maths?

The Cambridge A level Further Maths allows you to develop skills which will help you study a range of STEM subjects at a higher level. It strengthens transferrable skills such as logical thinking, modelling and analysis. It is also highly valued when applying to university for competitive courses such as Medicine, Computer Science and Engineering.

David Hilbert famously said, “Mathematics knows no races or geographic boundaries; for Mathematics, the cultural world is one country”

Mathematics represents a universal language which can be followed by anyone, anywhere in the world. It can be abstracted from the context and studied in a pure form and it can also allow us to apply the same mathematics to a diverse set of situations from a range of disciplines such as space travel, ecology, economics and disease prevention.

Note that our experienced University Services Adviser can advise on A level courses and all aspects of university entrance.

What do I need to know to enrol?

Further Maths at A level builds directly on, and assumes prior knowledge of many topics from, A level Maths. We therefore require you to have completed A level Maths with an A grade (or be predicted an A) before enrolling on this course.

All A level students will also require a Grade C or 4 for IGCSE English Language.

The syllabus and exam

This course will prepare you for the Cambridge AS and A level Further Maths syllabus 9231 

The full Advanced level qualification comprises AS and A level. N.B. If you take Mechanics at AS, you must take Statistics at A level, and vice versa. Exams take place in June and November.
